This study looks at protection in 10-11 and 15-16 year olds, immunized as infants with Hepatitis B (HB) vaccine to see if they still have residual protection against Hepatitis B disease. Adolescents will be invited to have a blood test and those without a minimal level of protection (antibody titer) will be offered a "test" vaccination to see if they still have capacity to recall an immune response. About one month later they will get another blood test to see if a booster resp...

This is a before-after study consisting of three sequential phases: Month 1: one month of observation of what is happening in the department Month 2: one month wash out period Month 3: active participation of a pharmacy technician in the department
Our goal for this project is to investigate the causes of the wide variability of the expression of Hereditary Multiple Exostoses (HME). Previous work completed by our group shows that there exists a correlation between genotype and phenotype such that certain mutations or affected genes cause certain patterns of presentation, symptoms, and signs. We intend on achieving our goal by increasing our study sample size to build on the results generated from the pilot project of thi...
